Pickin' Women: Rebecca Hoggan
A native of Richmond, Virginia, Rebecca Hoggan moved to Colorado during the summer of 2000 in search of other pickers to form a band. And find other pickers, she did.
The band, Hit & Run Bluegrass is comprised of Rebecca Hoggan (guitar), Erin Coats (bass), John Frazier (mandolin), Todd Livingston (dobro) and Aaron Youngberg (banjo). Their 2004 debut CD, Beauty Fades is one of very few contemporary Bluegrass CDs that I can listen to repeatedly. Listen to sound clips from their latest CD Without Maps Or Charts at hitandrunbluegrass.com.
An accomplished flat picker on her own, Rebecca has been recognized by Flatpicking Guitar Magazine and Bluegrass Unlimited for both her flatpicking and vocals. These three cuts are from her 2001 solo CD Born In East Virginia, available here. Give a listen to the wonderful combination of her rock solid flatpicking and beautiful voice.
